Preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation

Dear parents and Confirmation students,

I hope you are doing well and looking forward to Confirmation.  As always, I am happy to help anyone who needs help getting ready for Confirmation.

There will be a mandatory Parent/Confirmation Student Meeting.  You may choose to attend either of the following meetings in Mercy Hall:

  • Sunday, September 12 at 10:00am
  • Wednesday, September 15 at 7:00pm

I am planning to teach the Tuesday Confirmation class this year, and look forward to doing so.  Deacon Rob will be the main teacher on Sunday mornings.  Both of us are very enthusiastic about helping your son or daughter prepare to be strengthened by the Holy Spirit in Confirmation this year.

Escarlen Duran is our parish Confirmation coordinator.  She may be reached thru the parish office (908-454-0112).  Escarlen is happy to speak with you – in English or Spanish – and to help in any way she can.

While we do not yet have a date for Confirmation from the bishop’s office, we will share it with you as soon as we do.  It will probably be sometime in February, after the Confirmation classes have ended.

In the meantime, please feel free to call me (908-454-0112 ext. 407) with any questions you may have about Confirmation.  It will be my pleasure to speak with you about your son or daughters Confirmation. 

Please know that I am praying for you, your child, and all those who are preparing for Confirmation.  It is a great and holy moment in the life of any Catholic, and the whole parish family!

God Bless You,
Fr. John
